The interview begins with White's comments about Anderson Silva's upcoming fight on Spike, which White claimed is not an attempt to hurt the Affliction organization but simply part of his commitment to making good fights affordable for the fans.

"I'm always working on a network deal -- we're always talking to networks," White said. "We'll have a network deal as soon as the right deal comes."

White also said that while lightweight champion B.J. Penn may eventually move up to welterweight, White expects the winner of the Kenny Floridan-Roger Huerta fight at UFC 87 to take on Penn for the lightweight title.
